A breast of things
Today I went to the Breast clinic at my local hospital.
I have been having considerable discomfort in my left breast and under arm for several months now. So my doctor sent me for a check up with a very nice man, with warm hands. He had a feel, then sent me for a few mammograms. Results being I have nothing to worry about, but upon looking at the results, he feels there may be some thing else, not being breast tissue that is causing the pain. He suggested I go on Tomazipan which apparently regulates the hormones, but there is a risk of causing DVT.. of which can be a killer if not caught early enough. So we are going for Acupuncture in 3 months time. In the mean time I have to take pain killers and anti-inflammatory medication. So all in all a good result, however I still have pain in my left breast and under arm area, not life threatening...phew! I can't stand needles but wil be brave.. smiles all round!
